Padmapuṣpa (पद्मपुष्प) refers to “lotuses”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.21. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] When they [viz., Śiva’s Gaṇas (attendants)] went away and He was left alone with Satī, Śiva rejoiced much and sported with her. [...] Sometimes he would gather lotuses (padmapuṣpa) and other beautiful flowers and decorate her with them as though with ornaments”.
